A Garden of Fools

release date: Jul 16, 2013
A Garden of Fools
A Garden of Fools, a comic novel set in 1970, introduces the over-the-top character of Bartholomew W. Prickett, a larger-than-life thirty-something native of Atlanta who has transplanted himself to New York City. Before long, Bartholomew, accompanied by his long-suffering girlfriend Tanya and his chemically adjusted sidekick Everett DeWitt, who complicates matters with his misguided notion that Bartholomew is God, finds himself involved in the seemingly disparate worlds of Nixonian politics and rock and roll. A modern-day Don Quixote with a predilection for large words, Shakespeare, and pizza pies, Bartholomew tilts at the windmill of the individual''s plight against conformity. As such, A Garden of Fools is as relevant to today''s cultural dialogue as A Confederacy of Dunces was to readers thirty years ago.

Petal's Problems
One sister’s story in the series about a set of octuplets, their fantastic adventures, and the quest to solve the mystery of their parents’ disappearance . . . Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no! May is almost over and that means only one thing: Petal’s month to discover her gift and her power is about to begin. For most people, like her seven sisters, this would be a good thing. They would look forward to discovering their gift and their power. But not our dear Petal. As far as Petal is concerned, it could stay May forever. At least her sisters have some excitement in their future: The wedding of Aunt Martha and Uncle George will bring them, the Petes, and the cats to Paris, where fun—and a little bit of danger—will come as surely as the changing of the month . . . Praise for Annie’s Adventures: “Baratz-Logsted’s tales of thrills, suspense and hijinks should satisfy adventure-seeking young readers.” —Kirkus Readers
